ROCHELLE PARK, N.J. -- April 3, 2013

ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global satellite data communications company
specializing in the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) marketplace, today announced that
it has completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of the
GlobalTrak division of System Planning Corporation (GlobalTrak) and MobileNet,
Inc. (MobileNet). The GlobalTrak and MobileNet acquisitions accelerate
ORBCOMM’s growth strategy of expanding its end-to-end solutions portfolio into
key vertical markets and geographic regions.

GlobalTrak is an information services company that utilizes networks, sensors
and proprietary software platforms to provide near-real-time situational
awareness and intelligence to improve logistics and security processes and
operations on a global basis. GlobalTrak gives ORBCOMM access to a customer
base that includes military, international, government, and commercial
customers as well as expanded reach in growing regions, such as the Middle
East, Asia and South America. Combining GlobalTrak’s advanced products
including container and vehicle technology with ORBCOMM’s existing
capabilities will create a suite of transportation-related product offerings
across the expanded global distribution network.

A long-time ORBCOMM value-added reseller, MobileNet is a provider of
telematics solutions to the heavy equipment and rail support industries. The
acquisition enables ORBCOMM to offer MobileNet’s complete fleet management
solution directly to Original Equipment Manufacturers, dealers and fleet
owners. Leveraging MobileNet’s turn-key telematics platform will further
enhance ORBCOMM’s leadership position in services to the global heavy
equipment sector by providing customers significant operating advantages as
well as savings in development costs and faster time to market for
implementing solutions in the field.

“The completion of the GlobalTrak and MobileNet acquisitions is a significant
step forward in building our diverse portfolio of end-to-end solutions and
enables ORBCOMM to execute on our long-term vision of expanding our integrated
M2M services into new industrial and geographic markets,” said Marc Eisenberg,
ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our combined strengths will allow us to
broaden our product and service capabilities and leverage synergies across
common distribution channels, while providing value-driven, high-performance
solutions to our customers.”
